So, here we have it. Our cities and towns are facing bankruptcy! State governments cannot help, because they too are in terrible shape, as Uncle Sam stopped Federal Block Grants years ago. These were funds that the Feds send along, gratis to the states, to help with their localities; things like infrastructure repairs, schools, paying first providers ( police, fire , emergency services ) and many other budgetary needs. Since our invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq…… No more money! Zippo! Nada! Americans rallied behind the flag and worried not about local needs. After almost 9 years occupying Afghanistan, and over 7 years occupying Iraq, to the tune of over one trillion dollars , our nation is …….broke!
